'Dear Abby' advice columnist dies at age 94

AP: Pauline Friedman Phillips, who wrote the long-running “Dear Abby” advice column under the name Abigail Van Buren, has died at 94. Publicist Gene Willis says Phillips died Wednesday after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

The column competed for decades with the advice column of Ann Landers, written by her twin sister, Esther Friedman Lederer.
